Here goes nothing

I woke up the next morning so excited to try Lynlee on cereal. I still thought I was wasting my time. How would she eat when she won't take a bottle and gags when you put a sippy cup in her mouth? I wasn't even sure if she would ever eat. I've read about those kids that are so G-Tube dependent that they don't eat for years, and our feeding specialist has never sugar coated anything. She was always honest saying we only have a limited time for Lynlee to eat, and we can't miss that open window.

So I went to the grocery store and found the cereal that had the least amount of protein per serving. 16 grams = serving, and 1 gram of protein was one serving. Not to bad! I came home and here goes nothing I thought. Put it in her mouth and she ate it. She didn't gag, spit it out, nothing! It was litteraly one of my most proudest moments yet. I was SO excited. She was eating, really eating.

Lynlee proved us all wrong again, and I'm sorry for not having more faith in her!
